In a private home now and the owner is seeking its relocation.

From our local DJ / Re: Classic FM gives centre stage to organ!

Let's hope the trend continues.  There's still not much on Radio 3 aside from perhaps 2-3 tracks in the middle of the night.

Every Blessing

From our local DJ / Classic FM gives centre stage to organ!
« Last post by David Pinnegar on June 18, 2020, 05:36:08 PM »
It's really great to see a radio station as popular as Classic FM giving the organ an appropriate position on the musical horizon - https://www.classicfm.com/composers/elgar/nimrod-on-asia-largest-pipe-organ-taiwan/
and encourages people to play the organ on their laptop . . . !

I was contacted by my Rector who said that guidelines now allow us to go in to church to check on the condition of our organs.
I have to enter by the side door, lock myself in, wash my hands and log my arrival and leaving times in the book provided.
I have no problem with giving the organ some generous excercise to check on it's well-being!
Probably two or three times a week would be a good regime at the moment!

Organ building and maintenance / Dutch organ consoles
« Last post by revtonynewnham on June 03, 2020, 09:49:50 AM »
Hi

I've been watching live streamed concerts by a couple of Dutch organists.  I've noticed a number of organs have some of the stops positioned above the console - just wondering about the logic behind that.

Every Blessing

Organ Music and Repertoire / Music for a church in lockdown
« Last post by revtonynewnham on May 24, 2020, 09:43:55 AM »
Hi

Wolston Baptist Church, where I play regularly, is closed due to the Coronavirus epidemic.  I've been recording some music (chosen by our minister, or anyone else (including me a couple of times!) who has put the worship material together.  Due to the age & lack of computer knowledge the church leaders decided to circulate this in printed & e-mail form.  The e-mail recipients get links to my recordings to sing along to if they wish.  All the recordings are available on my You Tube channel.  https://www.youtube.com/user/revtonynewnham

Every Blessing

Hi, there are many things to worry about nowadays,
 but this should certainly I think be one of them !
I guess the phrase " don't take anything for granted would apply "
on the Oragn related front, I still haven't got a basic practice Organ working.
